9:23 am
had in the community. >> i'm sure you didn't think it was awesome when it happened though. >> of course. >> what made you stick with this? >> i always wanted to be a warrior. after failing out of west point i said i want to try again. but i want to try harder. so i signed up for the navy seal program and i didn't even know how to swim. i just wanted to do it because i thought it was what i needed to do. i ended up in afghanistan in 2009.>> when i think of military people like yourself especially successful people i think of discipline. is that a big part of being where you are today? all these people who do this are very disciplined. >> i think so. this community is a different level. it is more responsibility. i wouldn't put them in the same hat but i know why people say
9:24 am
that. there is so much to do in the navy seal program on a daily basis that you have to come every morning sharpening your knife, so to speak and you have to live at that level. to the outside it looks like discipline but there is so much to do every day. >> when you are in battle and all help is breaking loose. i have always been curious about what happens like what goes through your mind and what carries you in certain situations? >> i think it is everything. you mentioned the book title. the original book title was spartan woman because i wanted my kids. i rode this book to my kids. i did not anticipate anybody would ever read it. but i wanted my kids to know how strong a woman has to be to

9:26 am
veterans. the people who are in combat. the ones who never saw combat and in the families of the people in service and then the people who chose not to be in service. they are actually affected by war in the same way. the problem is that everybody needs to understand, you need to figure this out as a community. is not the veterans having a problem, it is the whole community with a problem. the actual combat veterans are a small minority of people. it is a system of human beings trying to figure out a problem and i have never been treated poorly ever. i am sure people have and i am not denying, but i see this as a system problem. people have made an ever -- error.
9:27 am
it is a series of solutions that need to be found. it is an american issue. >> i'm curious, the bowe bergdahl story and not really -- receiving a prison sentence, what is your thought? >> we try to rescue him twice. i don't know what was behind that. it was a sentence equal to what was put on the table. should he have received more tax i am not in a position to say that. i would have gone to rescue him whether he was bad or good. you don't get the choice. it is an american citizen that made an error but you have to do the work. whatever happens later is somebody else's decision. everyone who went to rescue him, they would have done it regardless. you don't go because you like
